In my house, there is no attempt to write or research without help from a cat. The moment I laid out my books to start my project (a research paper), a helper kitty appeared! I opted not to post a straight up picture of books & cat, because the idea of research and creating new knowledge is that it changes things ... and sometimes, it changes everything. I'm only starting the research for my term paper so, I chose to photoshop it into something sketchy and not all there, because that's the status of my current project. It's got outlines, but it hasn't come together, not yet.
